User:Ainz/Seven Great Demon Lords Draft

From Wikimon
Jump to: navigation, search

The Seven Great Demon Lords (七大魔王 Nanadaimaou) are a group of Demon Lord type Digimon who each represent one of the seven deadly sins and are based on seven demons from Judeo-Christian mythology as well as elements and references to the epic poem Paradise Lost[1] by John Milton, The Lesser Key of Solomon[2] (Clavicula Salomonis Regis), a well known book in demonology, amongst other material.

Although the members of this group have appeared individually as antagonists throughout various series, there have been few occasions where a pivot story plot has been revolved about the entire group as a whole. For example, they are mentioned in Digimon Savers[3] and have been prominently portrayed together in later Digimon TCG media. They have been the main antagonists in Digimon Savers: Another Mission and Digimon Story. They are also referred to in a storyline promoting the Digimon Twin, whereby they secretly release a crack program (Tempest) into the Digital World, causing rampage as a consequence[4]. Currently, Leviamon and Lilithmon are the only two Demon Lords who have yet to make an appearance in the anime or the manga.

Crests[edit]

Reference sevenseals.jpg

Each of the Seven Great Demon Lords has their own crest 「紋章 Monshou」. The center of each crest depicts one of the seals of the Seven Olympian Spirits, a group of seven mythological entities who, under God, ruled over the 196 provinces of Heaven and presided over the natural world for 490 years each[5]. They are mentioned in works such as the Arbatel de magia veterum and are each associated with a celestial body, which is also displayed on the crest directly above the Olympian Spirit seal, and corresponds to a particular sin. Within the space between the two concentric circles is text stating a designated Level; this is "666" for all the crests where "666" is the "Number of the Beast", a concept mentioned in the Book of Revelation, System; a demon that represents one of the Seven Great Demon Lords, and Code which identifies a sin associated with the aforementioned demon. At the bottom of the inner circle is text which specifies a caution for a Purgatory Level ranging between 1 and 7.

The structure of the text is in the following format:


LEVEL:___ SYSTEM:___ CODE:___ (repeated twice)
CAUTION! PURGATORY LEVEL ___

The Seven Great Demon Lords are listed here in order of ascending Purgatory Level. This ordering is a reference to seven levels of purgatory mentioned in the epic poem, the Divine Comedy (Divina Commedia) by Dante Alighieri. In the poem, each level represented a different one of the seven deadly sins and presented ways to atone for each sin. As a person progressed, they would eventually make it to the top of the "Mountain of Purgatory", reaching Paradise.[6]

The structure of the "Mountain of Purgatory" analogous to the Seven Great Demon Lords' Purgatory Levels is the following:


PARADISE
PURGATORY LEVEL 7: THE LUSTFUL
PURGATORY LEVEL 6: THE GLUTTONOUS
PURGATORY LEVEL 5: THE AVARICIOUS
PURGATORY LEVEL 4: THE SLOTHFUL
PURGATORY LEVEL 3: THE WRATHFUL
PURGATORY LEVEL 2: THE ENVIOUS
PURGATORY LEVEL 1: THE PROUD
